Yet. If you keep up those actions it won't be a matter of if but when. I don't consider taking both hands off the wheel at over 100 m.p.h. to slap high fives while your foot is pushing the throttles to be very safe. But that is just my opinion. I also noticed that the video was removed from youtube....interesting.

The big difference is I was wearing a Lifeline jacket in the picture with my hands on the wheel and throttles.

#224 - Third shot.

Possibly Jim's activities didn't raise your insurance rates...maybe your false statements did???

Simple observation. Call me the a$$clown police.

I know GLH said don't feed the trolls but sometimes they are so cute you just can't resist. The Key West Freedom crew were all adults capable of making their own decisions. I always brief new riders myself and make sure they have goggles, earplugs ect and know where the grab handles are and how to use them. I am always keeping an eye on the passengers to be sure they are OK and comfortable in their enviorment. We know when to "strap in". big water, poker runs, lots of traffic ect. Anything can happen at any time but if you think running a 46' 13000#
boat in a straight line in 1' chop 3 miles offshore is pushing it....then you ain't got a clue. Happy boating and enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family.

You really don't deserve a statement from me but you seem like such a tool that desided give you one!!! To everybody else have a great Thanksgiving This is the one and only statement I will make on this thread. See ya
Wazz up Jim Happy Thanks Giving.. I guess fixing a Drink at 140 is out of the question

Glad you had a great trip wish I could have made it!! Sorry about the problems but comes with performance boating.. Someone on this site always has to pee in the corn flakes!! If I wanted more rules and PC police I would stick to driving on the streets.

He's been kicked off almost every boating site for inappropriate comments. Ask him to show you his Halloween pics...

Whoever gets Jim POed has to be a major league idiot, there is not a better, bigger hearted guy around promoting & dedicated to our hobby.

Remember what Theo said... again one who did his own thing...

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

So you critics chew on this.
